THE TRUE TALE OF ONE OF THE GREATEST DISCOVERIES IN HISTORY

 

When Paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from the Black Hills Institute made the world's greatest dinosaur discovery in 1990, they knew it was the find of a lifetime; the largest, most complete T. rex ever found. But during a ten-year battle with the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes, and competing paleontologists they found themselves not only fighting to keep their dinosaur but fighting for their freedom as well.

 

Based on the book Rex Appeal  by Peter Larson and Kristin Donnan.
